Mexico continue their preparations ahead of the last eight round in the Nations League with two international friendlies in September. The last of those will take place in Philadelphia, as they come up against Germany. They come into this match looking to bounce back to winning ways, as they were held to disappointing draws last month against Australia and Uzbekistan.
Their overall record in this fixture would be a slight concern ahead of the friendly, as they have won just twice in 12 attempts against Germany. However, they will have fond recent memories of this fixture, as they landed a 1-0 win in the most recent clash between the sides at the 2018 World Cup, which was their first win over Germany since 1985.
A new era for the German national team gets underway during the September international break, as Julian Nagelsmann takes charge of the team for the first time. Hansi Flick was relieved of his duties last month following a humbling home loss against Japan, and Germany quickly responded to his sacking by landing a 2-1 home win over France.
Huge pressure will be on this German side, as they are gearing up to host the 2024 EUROs next year. But, optimism around the nation is at an all-time low after suffering a second straight exit at the group stage of the World Cup last year. But, if they are able to get back on track, they will be major players at the EUROs next year.
Mexico vs Germany Prediction
Things for Germany just didn’t click under Flick, but they looked in fine form during the last international break after recording a win over France. We expect that winning sequence to continue against Mexico on Tuesday.
